They explored the following overarching questions: Where are the hotspots of raw material consumption? Do solutions for reduced resource consumption already exist?
The discussions showed that cities and industry have already developed good solutions for conserving natural resources while at the same time strengthening the innovative power of the Swiss economy. In order to be able to implement these solutions in reality, however, it also requires a change in thinking, a lot of creativity as well as the right framework conditions. This calls for close cooperation among the stakeholders concerned. To ensure that this cooperation can be achieved, the 2018 forum was entitled “Science, business and cities working together for greater resource efficiency”.
So it’s now up to all the players to create collaborative partnerships. In this way, they can work together to identify the right solutions and take them forward.
